Jamie Lynn Spears has quit 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' on "medical grounds".

The 32-year-old star has become the second contestant to leave the ITV show following food critic Grace Dent's departure for the same reason earlier this week.

Jamie was seen breaking down in tears a number of times during Tuesday's (28.11.23) episode despite seeming to settle into life in the Australian jungle after a challenging start.

A spokesperson for the show said: "Jamie Lynn Spears has left 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' on medical grounds.

"She's been a fantastic campmate who has triumphed at trials and bonded well with her fellow celebrities."

Jamie's campmates have been informed that she has left the jungle and will not be returning – with her final appearance airing on tonight's (29.11.23) episode.

The 'Zoey 101' actress – the younger sister of pop star Britney Spears – broke down in tears in last night's episode as the camp managed to win a bar of chocolate to share and took herself away to sob.

After fellow campmates Tony Bellew and Danielle Harold checked up on her, Jamie – who is mother to daughters Maddie, 15, and Ivey, five – said: "I probably should have just let someone else eat it. I feel a little better maybe. I just needed to cry."

Speaking in the Bush Telegraph, former boxer Tony said: "She's just getting frustrated, she misses her kids.

"She's so far away from home. It's good to just go and ask someone how they're doing. Just look out for each other. Everyone should have that attitude with everybody."
